So THIS is what happens if you ask Caroline about… Rory’s ankle

She'd just been knocked out of the fourth round of Wimbledon (despite being a former world No.1 – she's never made it to the London tournament's quarter-final stage).

So understandably, Caroline Wozniacki probably wasn't in the best form during the post match press conference. 

Then – in a move that could be described as the very definition of adding insult to injury – a final question pops up.

"Do you have any messages for Rory McIlroy who sustained an injury to his ankle today?" comes the rather inappropriate query. 

Cue Ms Wozniacki putting on her fiercest face; looking to the left, then looking to the right. She next stares intently at a moderator who is prompted (while also probably terrified) to tell the gathered media: "We'll stick to tennis questions."

The Dane was beaten in straight sets yesterday by Garbine Muguruza.

​She and Mr McIlroy dated from 2011. They became engaged over New Year's Eve in January 2014 and were due to marry last November.

However, a week after the wedding invites went out last summer, Rory famously broke up with her over the phone.
